Baku, Azerbaijan, May 22
By Elchin Huseynov - Trend:
Baku's Upland Park is the highest point in the Azerbaijani capital, opening a panoramic view of the city and its bay.
The city's residents and visitors often come here to see a bird's eye view of Baku, and just have a walk.
The Upland Park can be reached by cable railway (funicular) in 7-8 minutes from the boulevard or by climbing up the endless stone stairs.
But it would be better to enter the park right from the top - from the square, which houses the country's parliament, alley of martyrs, and the world-famous symbol of modern Baku, the Flame Towers. This place can be reached by both public transport and taxis.
This park is a beautiful corner of Baku, and could be very interesting for the city's guests, especially those coming for the European Games.
